First came Superstorm Sandy. Now a nor'easter has slammed New York. And tonight hundreds of thousands of people are still without power in the state.
Residents of Staten Island, the New York borough hardest hit by Sandy, are now now digging out of up to 7 inches of snow. Today's New York Daily News cover said it best with just two words, "This Sucks."
Tonight Anderson will talk with Staten Island resident Nick Camerada, whose home has no power. He and his family have been trying to stay warm with a propane heater for 10 days and counting. We first met Mr. Camerada last night when he talked with CNN's Rob Marciano as the snow was piling up outside his home. He's like so many other New Yorkers who are left wondering when the lights and heat will return.
10 days and counting, too many storm victims are left in the dark and now homeowners are finding out they have to hire a private electrician to inspect and possibly repair any damage before Con Edison, New York City's utility company, will turn the power back on. We'll have the latest on that.
Anderson will also talk with New York State Senator Martin Golden in devestated Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn.
And due to gasoline shortages in New York City and Long Island, there will now be odd/even rationing for drivers based on the last digits of their license plates. It takes effect tomorrow morning - for odd plates - since it will be November 9th, an odd-numbered day.
All these developments and much more at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.
I feel the Tea Party is really the major stumbling block for Republicans. They have tied the hands of moderates and divided the country in a way we have never seen. I believe this election was truely a referendom on the Tea Party.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
